Still to come, Ramsay stars in the dramatic short "White River Tales" and will recur in the comedy web series "The Loonies."
In between projects, Ramsay Philips took some time to answer a few preguntas about his newest film: Tell us about “The Reunion.”
RAMSAY: “The Reunion” is about three high school friends who go on a weekend getaway but the past comes back to haunt them. One person at the reunion is not who he seems and he is not there for a reunion. Was it challenging to play twin brothers?
RAMSAY: It was an amazing challenge playing twin brothers. Playing two people in one film is every actors dream and I couldn't be más happy to do it. The biggest thing for me was distinguishing the two brothers from each other. Figuring out who they are and what makes them tick. Sure they're going to have some similar qualities which is natural with twin brothers but they are also going to have some distinct differences between the two. And mining for those similarities and differences is where the challenge lies. What would tu consider each of their ‘best’ o ‘worst’ qualities?
RAMSAY: Wow this is an awesome question. Definitely for Nathan his best and worst quality is the same and it is loyalty. He is so loyal he would do anything for some people and unfortunately some people take advantage of that. For Cole it would have to be he's self-centered and manipulative. He only cares about himself and doesn't care about who he hurts in the process. Any interesting stories from the set tu can share with us?
RAMSAY: Set was amazing! Everyone from cast and crew were amazing to work with. We filmed at a big house in Carpinteria and every día at lunch we would rush to eat our comida so that we could all play soccer on the lawn. We would play keep away, someone would get in the middle and have to steal the ball. The theme song of our set was "Mustang Sally" because the care taker of the property her name was Sally so we would play it every día before we would film. What’s the biggest lesson tu learned from working on this project?
RAMSAY: The biggest lesson I learned on this film is that I can lead a feature film. This experience was so incredible and amazing that I will never forget it. Every night after filming we would all go back to the hotel and hang out and play games. We would hang out on off days por the pool, o go to Santa Barbara, o to the beach. And, now just for fun:
Who’s your favorito! actor/actress?
RAMSAY: I can't name tu just one so I gotta go with Leo, Denzel, Meryl, Daniel día Lewis, and the Toms, Tom Hanks and Tom Hardy. They are all incredible and really bring their characters to life and tu get lost watching their performances. What role from the past do tu wish tu could have played?
RAMSAY: Oooohh wow this is a great question. It would have to be Jack from "Titanic" o Travis Bickle from "Taxi Driver." Two completely different but two amazing roles I would have loved to play. Favorite movie o TV mostrar from your childhood.
RAMSAY: My favorito! movie from childhood and still to this día is "Titanic." This is the film that did it for me. I watched this and I dicho I wanted to be an actor. The amor story and everything about this film is incredible and It's why Leo is one of my favorito! actors. Tell us one thing that would surprise our readers to learn about you.
RAMSAY: Celine Dion is my favorito! singer of all time. She is incredible. My mom would always be playing Celine Dion around the house and in the car so we didn't have a choice but to fall in amor with her. tu can feel the passion she sings with. tu can feel every word. Then when she came out with "My corazón Will Go On" my amor for her only grew. How can fans keep up with you?
